Sea lions are highly intelligent, friendly, and mischievous marine mammals. We provide a home for a group of these amazing creatures at our marine mammal compound in Nuevo Vallarta just north of Puerto Vallarta on the shores of Banderas Bay. Puerto Vallarta vacationers can interact with our highly-trained sea lions at this state-of-the –art compound on a sea lion encounter, or enjoy a scuba diving excursion with these fascinating creatures in their natural environment.
Sea Lions are the bewhiskered clowns of the coastline; they are thrilled to play with people and one another in the water. You don’t want to pass up this chance to experience a personal encounter with these light-hearted rascals.
Whether you choose to meet our Sea Lions at our marine mammal compound, where you can encounter members of our sea lion family in a secure shallow-water platform, or interact with the sea lion in the open water at the marine preserve of Los Arcos in Banderas Bay, you will enjoy learning about and interacting with these incredible creatures.
No matter where you choose to interact with these playful imps of the sea, you will be charmed by their acrobatic antics. Sea Lions are naturally sociable with people and allow touching, hugging, and even kissing. The Sea Lions are similar to large aquatic dogs because of how easily they seem to relate with people. Our informative tours will not only give you the unique chance to interact with sea lions, but will also educate you about these remarkable mammals.
